The Autumn Bride by Anne Gracie (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Alison Larkin

♥ ♥ ♥ ½ This book was alright. After reading a bunch of reviews saying it was great and having really enjoyed past books by this author, I must admit I had some higher expectations.  The plot was good, I really enjoyed Lady Beatrice - she gave me some chuckles - but I didn't feel the sparks between Abby and Max. I found more time was spent on the four girls and their backstories, than on the two leads romance together.  I will probably check out the next book in the series one day but not right now.

The Narrator Alison Larkin did a good job, she had a decent range of voices. I would listen to her again.

The Blurb:

Anne Gracie is “always terrific,”* and now the award-winning author delivers a brand-new series about four young women on the verge of destitution—until a daring act changes their fortune and transforms each of them into a glowing bride…
Governess Abigail Chantry will do anything to save her sister and two dearest friends from destitution, even if it means breaking into an empty mansion in the hope of finding something to sell. Instead of treasures, though, she finds the owner, Lady Beatrice Davenham, bedridden and neglected. Appalled, Abby rousts Lady Beatrice's predatory servants and—with Lady Beatrice's eager cooperation—the four young ladies become her “nieces,” neatly eliminating the threat of disaster for all concerned!

It's the perfect situation, until Lady Beatrice’s dashing and arrogant nephew, Max, Lord Davenham, returns from the Orient—and discovers an impostor running his household…

A romantic entanglement was never the plan for these stubborn, passionate opponents—but falling in love may be as inevitable as the falling of autumn leaves...
